ATLANTA — The Chick-fil-A restaurant chain has added multigrain oatmeal to its menu. The new product features steel-cut oats, rolled oats, flax, buckwheat flour and whole wheat flour. Customers may choose one of three toppings, including cinnamon brown sugar, roasted mixed nuts or a dried fruit blend. A serving contains 120 calories and 2.5 grams of fat without a topping and up to 290 calories and 11 grams of fat with the addition of a topping.
“Our customers have made it clear that they would like to have healthier alternatives for breakfast,” said Woody Faulk, vice-president of brand strategy and design. “Over the past few years we have tried to respond to those requests by diversifying our menu with healthier options, such as the Yogurt Parfait we introduced last year, and our Fruit Cup and Multigrain Bagel we added a few years ago. Our menu is all about choices — we offer our signature Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit for the more hearty appetite to the Cinnamon Cluster for those craving something sweet in the morning to the health-minded customer who now has an additional choice of our slow-cooked oatmeal.”
The multigrain oatmeal is priced at $2.49 for an 8-oz bowl and $5.65 as part of a meal that also includes a small cup of coffee and a fruit cup.
